This is the third day since I found this board and realized how extensive my procrastination problem really is. Avoiding discomfort, whether in the form of deadlines, distasteful tasks or conflict, has become a way of life. I truly believe I can honestly say the problem has become unmanageable–I have lost control of my procrastination.
Still, since I found this website & read the entries by other people like me, I really don’t feel so alone. I have firmly decided to work the 12-steps in my effort to address this issue. What I’m trying to embrace right now is the idea that a higher power could restore me to sanity where my time-wasting is concerned. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this aspect of recovery?
For today, I will:
Bring mail to P.O.
Fill out applic.
Work on clutter on chair
- Login to post comments
Gmarie - STRESSING
OK, I have procrastinated into the panic phase of my work "style", if you can call it that... Once I get through this "crisis", created by me, of course, I am committed to do what it takes to change. I now have 52 reports due on Friday, as well as hours of related work checking transcripts, doing report cards, etc.! =/
I just received my evaluation: "Outstanding" in areas involving my work with families and co-workers, "Exceeds Job Requirements" in the areas of job knowledge and initiative and "Meets Job Requirements" in the areas of dependability, punctuality and strategic planning. Guess what area I got a "Needs Improvement" in? COMPLETES WORK IN A TIMELY MANNER! (And the "Meets" scores above were charitable, as well.)
Soooo, I need to do 17+ reports each day for the next three days, including today and it's already 5:00. If anyone is so inclined to give me a "high five" or a "go girl" once in awhile over the course of this evening, Thursday and Friday, it would be much appreciated.
Here's today's MUST DO list:
* Sawyer, Chloe #1 #2 #3 #4
* Sawyer, Christian #5 #6 #7 #8
* Sawyer, Chelsea #9 #10 #11 #12
* Veneman, Shelby #13 #14 #15 #16
* Faulkner, Zoe #17
* Emails - Lyndsey Bohlender, Shelby Veneman, Frank Ollis
You can do it, Gmarie!
Let us know how the reports are going -- just crank them out! You go girl!
